One of the causes of liver disorder is because of drugs. One of the drugs that cause liver damage is paracetamol. Glucomannan is a major component of the porang tuber that serves as a soluble fiber. Glucomannan is thought to have hepatotherapy effects as a potential antioxidant.. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of glucomannan porang tuber (Amorphophallus oncophyllus Prain ex Hook. F.) with graded doses of the blood levels of SGPT and SGOT wistar male rats induced by paracetamol dose of 1,638 g/kg BB. This research was experimental study. The treatment in this study was porang glucomannan with a dose of 25 mg / kg, 50 mg / kg and 100 mg / kg.
